Hydra is the solo project by catalan artist AdriÃ Bofarull. Bofarull has been involved in various electroacoustic projects focusing its compositional approach on the idea of sampler. This LâAntimatÃ¨ria its the third instalment on the series of releases focused on that very project.
Before, Hydra has been released in Exp_Net netlabel (curated by good friend Javier PiÃ±ango) and self released as a CDr through good old Myspace platform.
This time, Bofarull delivers a extended canvas in which he expands its own language through 10 tracks that are hidden within the listening experience. The very nature of his compositions are build in a form that one looses track of when one composition starts and when the previous ends. Even that there are 10 tracks on LâAntimatÃ¨ria, we hear a whole unstructured composition that evolves and shows at every step on the way the complexity of the rough materials that Bofarull uses and the combination of all sonorities.
On LâAntimatÃ¨ria we go from pure field recordings combined with digital effects, synths and all types of sound processing building a canvas in which the colour palette is bast and complex.
LâAntimatÃ¨ria is an album built on different sound spaces, its a work full of corners, crossroads, hallways and turns. Bofarull plays with unexpectancy through combinations of sound sources, pannings and extreme turns over the whole listening experience. A very good example of the healthiness of new catalan experimental music.
